Alliance hosts free MLK Day events
The Alliance Theatre will host a variety of free activities for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.Celebrate MLK Day with the young artists of the Alliance Theatre’s Palefsky Collision Project as they explore the issues and ideas that challenge their generation to change the world. Members of the 2015 Palefsky Collision Project, Troubling Our House: In Search of the Beautiful Stranger, have come back together to create a special performance for MLK Day. Inspired by the themes found in the classic play Inherit the Wind as well as current civil rights issues in our country, these young artists collaborated with playwright Pearl Cleage and director Patrick McColery to re-imagine their original script through the lens of Dr. King’s message of hope and peace amid civil unrest. This original work will energize and inspire audiences with a message of hope, peace and the power of community. Join us for a unique Martin Luther King, Jr. Day celebration you will never forget!
